I think Floyd is the best Middle School in Montgomery County, public or private. FMMS has been recognized as a Pacesetter School for Making Middle Schools work for the last 3 years. Students have multiple opportunities for club involvement and competition. Our sports teams are fun, and have won MPS Championship titles. We have strong parent support at every event. Our school has slightly over 500 students, and our PTSA has over 550 members. Parents can get daily access regarding school happenings through email, Facebook, websites and blog posts. Teachers are available to tutor children one hour every week. The FMMS community is not perfect, but it is actively pursuing improvement and excellence is being attained.

My son has a great a experience at Floyd. The math instruction is exceptional, the PTSA is very involved, and the teachers are committed to providing a great education. Each academic teacher offers tutoring, and there are extra-curricular academic activites such as MathCounts and the Technology Students Association. Floyd also has a thriving sports program.

This is our first year at Floyd Middle Magnet and my 7th grader is thriving. We are a military family, and we did extensive research to make sure we picked the best school for our child. Floyd was our first choice, and we made the right one. Our student is eager to get to school, and excited to come early for band practice or stay after for Math Team practice. The majority of the teachers have 15+ years of teaching experience, post graduate degrees, and are committed to helping their students get the best education possible. The school has a strong PTSA, and all parents are welcome to get involved. The doors are open to parent volunteers, and all volunteers are greatly appreciated. The principal and vice principal are easy to reach, and any questions or concerns are handled promptly. The school also offers many sports programs. Soccer, basketball, volleyball, track, cheerleading, and wrestling are now available. The exterior of Floyd Middle Magnet may not be the prettiest, but the interior is a place of higher learning where your child can excel in Math, Science, Technology, and core curriculum.

Floyd has a wonderful mix of great education and student involvement. This is our first year at Floyd and we already know our child will be very ready for the future school years due to the very responsive, diligent, and knowledgable teachers (not to mention the the Administration). I want my child to have all that is available in the Science and Technology sector simply because that is where the future is. Floyd can take our children there with no problem. It should be 'America's Favorite School'!!!

I'm a new parent in the Floyd family. I am pleased with the support that the teachers are offering. The 6th grade honor's math teacher along with her teenage son donates 1 hour of their personal time, to tutor students. No charge! Just one hour of their time to give back to the students. I'm so pleased to be apart of this schools family. Thank you.

I am currently a 7th grader at this school. I maintain a 3.5 - 3.75 GPA. You have to have 2.5. Some of the options in electives are Personal Finance, Computer, Spanish, Yearbook, Band, Speech, Art, and a few I think I'm missing. The extra-curricular activities include National Junior Honors Society, Debate Team (I currently participate in), Step Team (This one too), Dance Team, Panther Productions (This one too, is basically a news show in the morning time for Floyd.), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Student Council, and lots more! The teachers there are well educated, the food is good, students are nice, and I think this is the best school I have ever attended. (Out of about 4 or so schools) Anyway, I give it 5 stars!

Whoa! That is really all I can say. FMMS is the best school to me I went there for 6Th & 7Th grade. Your probley wondering, ' oh if it is so good why did you not go for 8Th. I did not attend because of my grade you must have a 2.5 at the end of the year to come back. Overall you must be in the Band. It Rocks. Most school's bands are for 'nerds' but this when rocks. You are cool if you go into band. Play trombone it rocks. Well overall go to Floyd Middle Magnet School
